BMC teams up with Lamborghini to create Aventador-inspired Impec road bike

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 26, 2012

BMC Switzerland is releasing another exclusive impec bicycle, drawing inspiration from the successful impec Lamborghini Edition -- the Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec. A combination of high-end Italian components and a Swiss-made impec frame, the Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec features the same precision, detail, and style used in the Lamborghini Aventador.

This exclusive impec builds upon the similarities between race cars and race bikes -- shapes and colors, cutting-edge technology and high-performance handling characteristics. Other similarities include complete integration of engineering, research, and design. On the other hand, Lamborghini and BMC are known for breakthroughs in their fields even while skirting trends and conventions.

Both companies are also known for transforming novel concepts into functional designs as well as for always trying to think outside the box for solutions. Both companies have made carbon composite manufacturing as the core of their projects and their successes.

Lamborghini produces carbon bodywork at plant located next headquarters in Sant'Agata, Bologna, Italy, while BMC operates a fully automatized production site in Grenchen, Switzerland.

With these similarities, it leaves no doubt why these two companies have reached a deal to build the 50th Anniversary Lamborghini Edition impec. Blending Italian flair and tradition with modern technology, the impec features an exclusive set of made-in-Italy components equipping the frame.

The frame, painted to emphasize the precise carbon assembly, connects the complete work to Lamborghini's Aventador dream car. A number of details have been slotted in from the Aventador, like the leather used by Lamborghini for their seats.

The leather can be found on the impec's cockpit for bar tape and saddle. Only 50 examples of the Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec can be ordered by interested buyers around the world at a retail price of EUR25,000 exclusively through either the international BMC or Lamborghini dealer network. The impec will be produced on a made-to-order basis.

BMC Switzerland Introduces Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec

Inspired by the success of the previous impec Lamborghini Edition, BMC Switzerland has created an even more exclusive impec bicycle. The Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec combines high-end Italian components with the Swiss- made impec frame to create a road cycling machine that includes the same precision, detail, and style used in the Lamborghini Aventador dream car.

In the beginning there was a vision:
Race cars and race bikes have a lot in common. Beyond the obvious similarities in shapes and colors, cutting-edge technology, high-performance handling characteristics, and complete integration of engineering, research, and design all combine to deliver world-class performances on road and track. Lamborghini and BMC are two companies known for forging their own identities and breaking new ground, often times with disregard for trends and conventions. They're known for turning novel ideas into functional designs, never hesitating to try innovative technical solutions by thinking outside the design box. And both companies continually search for perfection in their respective industries. In the 1960s, Ferruccio Lamborghini strove to build the ultimate race car. Fifty years later, Swiss entrepreneur, Andy Rihs, turned his vision of the impeccable race bike into reality. For both companies, progress in carbon composite manufacturing has been at the center of their projects and their successes. Lamborghini produces carbon bodywork just next to its headquarters in Sant'Agata, Bologna, while BMC replaced traditional carbon frame laminate processes with a ground-breaking, fully-automatized production process at its headquarters in Grenchen, Switzerland. Both companies simultaneously unveiled their newest facilities and technologies in 2010.

Italian Heritage:
The 50th Anniversary Lamborghini Edition impec combines Italian flair and tradition with modern technology. An exclusive set of Italian-made components equips the impec frame, which is then painstakingly painted to highlight the precise carbon assembly while at the same time linking the complete work to Lamborghini's Aventador dream car. Additional details have been incorporated from the Aventador, including the same leather used by Lamborghini for their seats. This hide makes its way to the impec's cockpit for bar tape and saddle. The color, feel, and look are all authentic and exclusive to the Lamborghini Edition impec.

Order and Delivery:
The Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec is limited to 50 pieces worldwide, and will be produced on a made-to-order basis. Retail price is set at 25,000 Euros. The impec Lamborghini can be ordered exclusively through either the international BMC or Lamborghini dealer network. The bikes will be delivered by the dealer.
